New Delhi: India captain Sardar Singh Wednesday said they are looking for a top-4 finish at the Hockey World League Final to be played at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium here Jan 10-18.

The tournament will feature some of the best teams of the world including reigning Olympic champions Germany and World Champions Australia besides the Netherlands, England, Belgium, Argentina, New Zealand and hosts India.

It will be India's newly-appointed coach Terry Walsh's first assignment with the national team.

"We have the world's best coaches and hockey completely depends on the technique. We are having good training sessions and will try to give our best. We are aiming for a top-4 finish in the tournament," Sardar said after unveiling the event trophy here.

"This tournament will give us good experience and exposure as it is a new event. We are lucky that the final round is being held in India. We have a young team which is improving day-by-day. Our month long camp in Bhopal helped the players improve their performance a lot."
